A & B Auto Repair in North Hollywood preforms Wheel Balancing every day using a state-of-the-art computerized wheel balancing machines to guarantee your wheel-tire combination is precisely balanced. This self-calibrating system automatically determines how much weight is needed on the opposite side of the “heavy spot” – the scalloped or cupped tread wear on your unbalanced tire – and makes the necessary adjustments.
Tire Balancing is important to extend the life of your tires, as well as increase the basic safety of your vehicle. Out of balance tires can lead to uneven wear, vibration and potentially unsafe driving performance. It is very important to balance tires frequently based on your car’s requirements.
While performing a wheel balance, our ASE-certified mechanics will also check your steering and suspension to ensure the problem is not coming from a worn or loose part located elsewhere in your vehicle. When finished, we will provide you a written record of completed repairs as well a 24 month 24,000 warranty.
How to tell if your tires require balancing:
- Vibrations when driving
- Uneven tread wear
- Steering that becomes less smooth over the life of the tires
- Pulling to one side
The benefits of balanced tires are:
- Smoother ride
Often confused with wheel alignment, a properly balanced wheel is a beautiful, perfectly tuned wheel-tire combination. This is accomplished by placing measured lead weights on the opposite side of the “heavy spot”—the noticeable tread wear on your unbalanced tire.
